Do you believe in Friday the 13th?

I mean, it's just another day right? I've always found that if you really believed in something, you can actually go about making that something happen. You're in charge of your own fate sort-of-thing. Bad things supposedly happen on Friday the 13th, right? So technically, the day really doesn't stand a chance. I mean, if you wake up already believing that you're going to have a bad day, you're going to trick yourself into believing that the day is already bad. And every single little thing that happens, such as spilling your coffee, will be because it's Friday the 13th. So you spilled your coffee yesterday, too. But yesterday, it was because you were clumsy. But today, it's not your fault. It's because it's Friday the 13th.

Which, by the way, also happens to be the last day to submit your favorite horror videos to the Google Horror Video Show! Share those videos with us at to ensure that your favorite video is included. Scour the Google Video site and your own video library - we just might give you the rest of the weekend to do it. We'll show you the first group of terrifying flicks next week and you can start to vote on your favorites.

In the meantime, I'd recommend playing it safe this evening - stay home and snuggle up to a good video. Let these get you started:
